  • Houston Chronicle: UK find revives the debate over Richard III’s legacy, by Anthony Faiola, Washington Post – A not in all points correct article, which seems to have been written a bit in haste and negligently, though it does combine some of the points in the War of the Cities between Leicester and York to some length. The article ends in a way as if to forcibly come to an ending and so comes to a disappointing kill-it-all conclusion, which is used to death by all Richard III opponents and gets a bit boring and lame by now.
